Dainty Doll Storm In a Teacup & Rimmel Nail Polish in Mary Mary Quite Contrary
For whatever reason lately I've been really struggling to sit down and write a blog post that I'm happy with. I'm not sure if it's because my room is in the middle of being revamped and I have no quiet space to concentrate in, or if I'm just completely lacking imagination. Either way, it's really bugging me. 

My makeup lately has been fairly minimal and I've really been loving neutral tones and pastels. This Dainty Doll lipstick in 'Storm In a Teacup' has actually been discontinued now I think, but the shade is so pretty; almost in the dark lipstick family without being too dramatic or in your face. The formula is amazing too, so it makes the £1.99 price tag I bought it for on Fragrance Direct even better!
The nail varnish by Rimmel is my absolute favourite polish at the moment, closely followed by my ever loved Essie's 'Mint Candy Apple'. The formula isn't that great considering it takes 3-4 coats to become opaque, but the colour is so pretty and perfect for summer. 

Sorry for my abysmal efforts at blogging lately, after writing this I'm going to sit down and plan plan plan for some upcoming posts while I wait for the brain fog to pass. I can't be the only one!
I hope you're having a lovely week so far,
